Plant Spotlight: Thalia Daffodil

The Daffodils are in bloom in North Carolina! Daffodils, or Narcissus, provide some of the most reliable late-winter / early-spring blooms in the south. There are TONS of varieties out there, and I have at least 10 different type scattered around the garden, but my favorite by far is Narcissus 'Thalia'.

This beautiful bulb has 2-3 almost pure white flowers per stalk that have a wonderful delicate fragrance. They naturalize well in our southern soils and do better than most at flowering even as the bulbs get crowded.  A great Narcissus to try if you are tired of the old yellow varieties!


  1. we just had a few of those start popping up in our yard. They are so pretty.

  2. I keep eying Thalia in the bulb catalogs. Next fall I want to plant some all white daffodils in one of my beds, and Thalia will likely be one of them! So pretty!


Thanks for taking a walk in our garden.
